Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Owner was awful. Said he had a booking problem and will move us 'to his house down the road'. Assuming it would just be our group. There were TWO random people living in the house, and it was an extra 1.6km away. We had planned to walk to our festival. He then argued and treated us awfully, we are three 22 year old girls. Told us to do the walk in the dark and that we either take it or he will kick us out of the house. We had no option. It was 10.30pm at night and we were outside, so dangerous and he didn't care. He then tried to scam us and make us pay the amount AGAIN saying his eftpos didn't work. LIAR

What a wonderful place to stay. Anya the managaress, Cooper and Jackson the dogs ,Garfield and Gino the cats are such a wonderful team caring but luving, fair and firm. Facilities very clean , generally all stayers respectful and friendly. Downside a good 15 minute walk to town but generally someone is always driving into town if you need to buy groceries so no need to carry heavy items back. Would recommend highly. All my appreciation to everyone that made my stay an experience I will never forget I thank you. All the best, travel well and stay safe. Regards Karl Halkett

The most unrealiable and unsatisfactory experience in years. I arrived at 17:30 which was my expected time to find the desk unattended. Pushed the buzzer and nobody came. After waiting some 5+ minutes I noticed some papers on the desk for guests with our names on them. We had been moved to another hotel! They had my cell phone and email but no attempt to contact me. I had chosen this hotel specifically so I could be close to Seymour Square, I didn't want a place 1+ km out of town which meant I had to drive everywhere. Totally unacceptable and unprofessional behaviour. Avoid them unless you are willing to be 'pumped and dumped' to another hotel.

Basic small motel room. But quiet, cosy and just what we needed. Room had just small kitchenette with microwave and kettle but larger communal kitchen just a few rooms down provided what we needed to cook and eat in. Kitchenette and table felt small and cramped but otherwise all ok.

I stayed here with family at short notice and was pleasantly surprised with this great little hotel. Rooms are very clean and bedding is quite comfortable. We had three beds in the room and still had space to move around. The room even had a small area for coffee and tea making and a dining table and chairs too. Amenities are excellent for washing and drying clothes and an iron is available along with washing powder from the front office. I did notice a communal kitchen area that would be great for cooking easy meals. I would not hesitate to stay here again and the host was very helpful. Thank you and hope to see you again soon.

This is a great little old motel in the heart of Blenheim. The rooms were actually a decent size with good amenities. Is easily stay here again next time I was looking to stay in Blenheim while on a budget.

We needed a night’s stay in Blenheim, that would also take a dog. And Raymar fitted the bill. It was very clean and tidy, and had everything we needed. We would happily go back again. Came with fridge, milk, tea and coffee and sugar, plenty of plates and mugs and glasses. Wifi and bedding and towels and soap. For NZD$113 I really can’t see how we would have done better. Close to town centre, yet not a particularly busy road either, car parking right outside. It’s not top top luxury but it was very good.

We recently stayed at this complex on an overnight trip to blenheim. I found the room to be roomy, and looked to be redecorated/modernised. When we booked we specifically asked for a room off the road so we were somewhat dissapointed when we checked in and seen our room was right on the road front but as the complex was fully booked it was either take the room we had been allocated or leave it. In the end it wasn't the road noise that was bothersome for us infact there was no noise from the road at all, it was the clunking, buzzing, sloshing and wurring of the very sick sounding fridge that bugged us all night sadly we couldn't turn it off as we required some medication to be refrigerated .despite sleep qaulity being poor The beds were actually quite comfortable and a fan was provided for the hot night. definately no frills and very very overpriced for what it was but good enough for a one night stay.

But perfectly acceptable and a comfortable place to sleep. Terms are cash or debit card only (to keep costs down). It seems strange today that credit cards are not acceptable; apparently the cost to the motel to take a $120 payment by credit card would be around $5, and adding that to the price for payment by credit card would be acceptable as the cost of convenience to many travellers. Shower head is at shoulder height, which is not convenient, and the temperature control is coarse - it's hard to select a temperature between brrr and ouch, though with patience and fine motor control it can be done, We were made welcome and staff were very helpful.

The Raymar Motel is a good budget choice for Blenheim. The staff are friendly, the main room and bathroom very clean, and housekeeping is done daily. It is centrally located and within a short walk of downtown and a good grocery store. The kitchenette is supplied with a fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, dishes, cutlery, tea and coffee, and a small jug of fresh milk. There is a stove in the shared kitchen for cooking. Overall, I would certainly recommend this pleasant little motel.
